I hope this letter finds you all jumping into the school year after a restful summer. I’m excited to be taking the reins as editor-in-chief of the Observer this semester after serving as a staff writer and section editor for the past three years. In an effort to make this publication as accessible and transparent to the Tufts population as possible, we want to hear from you. Send us an e-mail, comment on our website, write an opinion piece; after all, we’re Tufts’ student magazine.
Our goal this semester is to make the O as relevant as possible to all of our lives as Jumbos. We want to supply you with the news pieces, culture stories, and opinions that will make you rely on the Observer for quality peer journalism. We want you to cut out our color insets and hang them on the wall in your dorm common room. We want you to bookmark our website.
I sincerely hope that we can fulfill your expectations as Tufts’ oldest publication of record. As we go forth into our seminars, recitations and countless hours in Tisch, I hope that we can take the Observer along as a guide, distraction and a literary companion.
